Police Station Parking Job Leads to DUI Charge

Choosing to drive while under the influence of alcohol is never a good idea. Sometimes impairment behind the wheel can be severe enough to cause a driver to go the wrong way and potentially cause serious injuries or worse.

One woman is finding this out first hand after she allegedly chose to get behind the wheel of her car and drove into the parking lot of a police station going the wrong way while intoxicated.

According to authorities, on October 5th at approximately 5:00 a.m., the Bass River Police Station received a call about a wrong way driver that was traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway at mile marker 51.

Upon investigation of the call, State Trooper Kimberly Snyder witnessed Colleen Johnson, 56, of Egg Harbor Township, pulling into the station parking lot from the southbound lanes and strike a curb as she pulled into a parking slot.

Trooper Snyder arrested Johnson for DWI, driving the wrong way on a highway, and refusal to submit to a breathalyzer test.
